Urine urea nitrogen

Posted by Agnes O.

Recently, have noticed a very strong ammonia odor to urine following typical exercise.  Haven't increased anything; not weight, not time, not distance, etc.  Had the level of urea nitrogen in the urine measured two hours after exercise and it was very high.  Blood ammonia level was normal.  Still need to do same testing on a non-exercise day for comparison sake.

My Primary Care Physician in whom I have every confidence admitted he was stumped by this scenario.  He thinks I may need to see a Nephrologist.

Any thoughts out there?
